South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol said on Monday that the country will do everything it can to help North Korea as the isolated country fights an outbreak of COVID-19, reiterating that he will remain open to humanitarian help.
“If North Korea responds (to our support), we will not spare any medicines, including COVID-19 vaccines, medical equipment and health personnel,” Yoon said in a speech at the National Assembly plenary.
Separately in the speech, Yoon also said he will discuss with US President Joe Biden ways to strengthen cooperation in the global supply chain through the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework. Biden will visit the country this week.
